(banjo music and clapping) oblige me, ma'am? thank you. (narrator) fonda's "wyatt earp" is a man of the prairie who, like the town of tombstone finds himself in transition. his attraction to clementine, a refined woman of the east, pulls him away from his wilderness roots, towards culture and society. hold it, folks, blasted, hold it! stand clear back and make room for our marshal and his lady. (hollering) (elmore leonard) the way he combed his hair, henry fonda, fit the part. "my darling clementine" had a real feel, a look to it of that period. where he's sitting with his boots up on the rail and someone comes by and smells his hair tonic. there are those little touches of realism that you appreciate. if you have to tell a story with words, you're in trouble. you'd better try and find another story. one of the things that makes westerns work is that they're told by images. which one of you killed james? i did and the other one, too

the middle of a busy city. we're at the san francisco zen center, and we're going to be looking at zen buddhism today. certainly, this is a wonderful symbol of what i think we're going to find, because at the heart of the buddhist experience is that very religious, very spiritual quest for peace and interconnectedness. now the story of the buddha is something that we'll be exploring here throughout this part of the experiential dimension. but today we want to go to an expert, paul haller, who's been practicing zen buddhism for many, many years, and is resident in this center. he's going to help us understand one of the buddha's key insights- that it's only through finding a peaceful center, like we have in this garden, that one can truly experience the spiritual nature inherent in all things. meditation is the key, and paul's going to tell us much about zen buddhist meditation today. >> the elegance of zen practice is that core instruction is quite simple- sit down, be erect, be alert, and be open to what happens, and then the particularity of each of our lives comes forward. and a
